Back in 2009 Dirk Driesen sent a demo ep to XS Records (Portuguese netlabel) and when Tiago and I received it I immediately said that we were going to go ahead with it. Almost 3 years later FeedbackLoop Label proudly presents you a new BpOlar release the Dhūpa ep,
Dhūpa means incense in Hindi and Dirk Driesen takes us on an inner trip providing us a set of microcosmos, intriguing scenes that somehow take us to empty and vast spaces, but at the same time ground us to the earth, with the wind chimes like sounds filling the air and delicate yet sometimes disturbing drones blow throughout sparsely.
Dirk Driesen achieves with Dhūpa a ceremonial feel that is at the same time an opportunity to achieve an inner state of peace yet slightly surrounded with the dark shadows of doubt, and from this clash of emotions, a true reality of the self is allowed to emerge.
